Explore the numerous day-trip ideas around Tromso: Senja (Bergsbotn & Ersfjordstranda) and Aurora Spirit (in Lyngseidet). On the 23rd (Thu), ski the day away in the pristine settings at Base Tromso. There's much more to do: get up close and personal with brilliant marine life at Polaria, fly down the slopes at Tromsoe Alpinsenter, contemplate in the serene atmosphere at The Arctic Cathedral, and examine the collection at Lavhaugen Museum.
